HH: Tell us about your hair slay. What’s your specialty?
KA: I specialize in extension installation and creative coloring. I am known for the best braid down in the fastest time and an installation that will look like you grew it yourself! I can also make any color theme come to life.
HH: What kinds of styles do you enjoy creating most?
KA: I love a challenge. I like to create new styles. I have mastered the basic styles, so I enjoy when someone brings me something I have never done before and I have to figure out how I will create it.
HH: Who’s your hairspiration?
KA: My hairspiration is the legendary Kim Kimble. She is the example of what a real hairstylist is — a business woman, an image consultant, a revolutionary and more! That is exactly what I am building my brand to be! My fellow HBCU Alum Taraji P. Henson is a celebrity who also inspires me in the hair realm. Her hair is always naturally soft, but edgy. I would remix it with Rihanna’s daringness to switch hair colors.
